Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah and his players will leave Accra this morning for Kumasi to prepare for their 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Uganda.

Twenty-one players have reported in the capital and will join the rest of the technical team on a flight to the Garden City.

The team will train at the Baba Yara Stadium-venue of the match-later in the afternoon for their first exercise.

Three players will arrive in the country tonight to join the select pack of players which includes Andre Ayew, Abdul Majeed Waris and Harrison Afful.

Ghana will play the Cranes on Saturday and will travel to Lome to face Togo on 10 September.

    How I wish all Ghanaians will just boycott this game and other home matches until these money-grabbing talentless footballers go on their knees and beg the good people of Ghana for the disgrace they brought on us.Come to think of it most of them dont even play in top rated teams and are even bench warmers in Europe.Why then do we climb over eachother to go watch them?

    For the first time in a long time, the stars will not have a capacity crowd watching them. Many of us have forgotten that they have a match this weekend. Even though management messed up, the players also didn’t do well. I won’t mention names but w number of players were chilling a few days after we were disgraced in the first round. And this was at a time that many fans were still down with shock and disappointment. It’s time they started respecting fans

    am even surprised to even think that 10% of ghanaians fans wll troop to kumasi to watch these average players they call stars, can we count even 5 players who plight their trade in these renowned leagues in Europe, apart from these “john” clubs? even top players lyk cr 7, messi, thomas muller, diego costa, john terry just to mention a few dont brag on their country pple when its time to play for their national teams, kwasias3m aaa kwa, nd yet yu boys want to hold d whole nation into ransom. hope yu saw how yu guys were welcomed wen u touched down in kumasi, nd try nd compare that to even ur last farewell trainning game wt d local dream team. if u guys care to know, money is not every thing but u shld know that its a great honor nd dignity to play for ur national team, fire burn u all. in anicase, what kind of extra ordinary game do u guys exhibit on d pitch for us to c? even players lyk abedi pele nd co. didnt blurf on us. i pray no soul enter dat babayara stadium there to watch dat stupid match, nonesense. u dnt even have respect for our only president, aaaah am pissed off koraaa, nd u stll have d guts to expect ghanaians as “stupid” (pardone ma expressions ghanaians) as we r to come nd support u again so u can collect ur USD 100,000 nd kiss it, kwasias3m. u wll loose dat game in jesus name, fools

      Well said my brother.You have spoken my mind.In a serious country like France when the players behaved the same way you all saw the measures that were taken.I think the best the FA and that so-called coach could have done was to have suspended for at least three games all the players who refused to train in brazil because of money.Be it a collective decision or not any player who did not step on the training pitch should have been suspended with the captain getting 5 games.We have the Turkey squad, the CHAN Team and Sellas Tetteh’s new Gabon team we could have selected from.Win or lose we would have achieved the objective of drumming into their heads that they are nothing without Ghana.Fire burn all these players plus anyone who goes to the stadium for the game.
